Are you a motorcycle fan or a fanatical collector of motorcycle memorabilia?
Succesbod.com is the place to be. Here you can find your favourite bike or the missing model in your collection.
Succesbod.com is not meant for business, but for enthusiastic collectors, just like the founder Dick J. Mensink himself. You can buy many different models of varying scales and there are auctions for selected articles. Besides motorcycles you can also find helmets, figures, pitboards and a lot more. The extensive collection is still growing.
Succesbod.com “Scale toys for big boys” is an initiative of Dick J. Mensink. As a 10 year old boy he went to the Dutch TT in Assen with his father and it was there that he saw his heroes drive in real life. In those days he was a big fan of the Italian Tarquinio Provini, also known by his nickname Bellini. In 1957 Tarquinio won both the 125cc as well as the 250cc class race, a unique performance.
Later Tarquinio would produce scale models under the brandname Protar. Not long after his trip to Assen Dick started building scale models, which were displayed in the battery company of his father. Now, 60 years later, he still collects. He also acquired various collections from fellow collectors. The time has come to start Succesbod.com, and start selling some models, because the collection has grown a bit out of hand. “My wife is getting a little crazy because of the number of motorcycles”, Dick says with a big smile on his face
Have fun looking around searching for your new model and "Stay in touch with this Dutch".
